Did anyone purchase the LivingSocial McDonald's big mac deal?

After the whole SaveMore.com fiasco I decided to see what else I hadn't received yet.

LivingSocial had a deal in Dec. for 5 big macs and 5 large fries for $8. I ordered it and haven't received it (some coupon book I think.)

I have emailed but haven't heard back.

Anyone else?

Dawn

We purchased and received ours about 3 weeks after the promotion. Hope you get to the bottom of things.

I got mine also. Makes me wish I would have had my mom order one also. Great for a college kid like myself.

Well, shoot. Now I wonder if I accidentally threw it away.

I received mine in time to put it in my son's Christmas stocking. It wasn't $8, though, I paid $13. It came in a pretty nondescript envelope. My son tossed it aside when he dug it out of his stocking .

I got mine and have had no trouble using them. The free oatmeal coupon in there was a nice bonus!

For anyone redeeming them, watch the total at the register.

I used 1 Big Mac and 1 Fries certificate last week and it came up as $1.50 for the Big Mac and $1.00 for the Fries. The manager tried to tell me that the certificates don't make the items free and you still have to pay a discounted price for them Thankfully, another manager was there who told him how to deduct the rest of the balance but I could see it being a problem if you order other stuff and aren't watching closely.

The McD's here have a sign on their drive thru, that says "please tells us of any living social deals prior to ordering". I used it once before for the movie tickets, but that was an online code used through fandango.

I almost missed the envelope too. It was sort of nondescript. It came very soon after I ordered.

Haven't tried to use them yet since we avoid fast food. I thought it would be good while driving on vacation.

I had this happen too at our McDonalds but it was because the cashier forgot to deduct it off. They were really nice and apologized multiple times. I agree to watch your receipt because I almost didn't catch it.

We got ours shortly after ordering.

I'm sorry you didn't get yours. Maybe contact Living Social?

This happens to me every time I go to one particular McDonald's (unfortunately, the closest one I work to). The first time I was buying some other things so I didn't even notice the $1.50 charge and sent a question to the McDonald's website asking if they were supposed to be free or just discounted (since the word "free" isn't on the coupon). They sent me a letter apologizing, that they were supposed to be free, and gave me a $5 gift card.

Then I went back and got just a Big Mac and the woman says my total will be $1.5X. I explained that no, it's actually free but I have to pay the tax. She looks irritated and says "Yes, I know. $1.5X IS the tax". I about fell out of my car. How expensive is a Big Mac if $1.5X is the tax! She huffed off and got a manager and had it fixed. I had this happen again the next time I went (different cashier). So I've given up going there. I've had no other issues using them at other McDonald's.
